Still not out yet, are you f'ing kidding me?

#1 Edited by I_smell (3924 posts) -

I've felt like Metal Gear Solid for a couple days, so I went to my Xbox and scrolled over to M.

HD collection and Peace Walker HD-Edition are here, but there's no buy button. I remember checking this a few months ago, and I heard back then that they're coming out in the UK later, but still? Jeez, what is the hold-up!

Oh it came out as a disc only, and probably won't make it to download...... aaaaaa... this doesn't feel like the kinda game I wanna order online and wait a week for. It's a PS2 game, I'd really rather just click on it... Will I still feel like playing this in 5 days? Man, I wish they would've put it on XBLA.

I hope they put ZOE 2 on XBLA, cos I REALL wanna play that again.

Alright but I'll HOLD YOU TO IT.

I almost just bought Bulletstorm instead cos it was downloadable.

+lmao Deadly Premonition is on the Xbox On-Demand service wearing it's "Destructoid 10/10" with much pride.

...what's wrong with on-disc?

#9 Posted by Bribo (605 posts) -

Why would anyone want to buy a collection that doesn't include the only two games in the series that matter (Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 4)?

Wait, now that I've though about it, Snake Eater was pretty good.

Pff! It's your money - I'm not gonna tell you how to spend it.

Always next day delivery on everything for me. Almost bad, since I know I can scratch a gaming itch way too quickly.

If games were to ever stop releasing on disc I would stop buying games.

Probably just play Final Fantasy IX forever.

Hasn't this collection been out for months and months? I've certainly had it for that long...

#15 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

@MikkaQ: It came out in like February for Europeans.

Ah, okay.

That still doesn't make any sense given this thread is from April, but ah well.

OP was looking for a Games On Demand release.

Which is a very unreliable way to get your games.....sometimes a game that was out a week ago is on Demand....then its a game from 5 years ago no one played is on it. Its never simply every game you'd like coming to it. I know how nice it is to just click and play.

However I get my games asap when I want them Disc or not.

Nothing like tearing the plastic off your cheaply plastic box and get tos ee the art work on the manual and such.

Plus I bought the collectors addition of MGS HD collection so I got the art book with it. Don't get that with downloadables. lol.

I live in the Netherlands and as far as I can tell it's been out in Europe for months. I've certainly been enjoying it.

This is the only suitable response. As Ryan would say GOOD LORD!
